The hip-hop vision that Zeph offers on this 2004 release is not confrontational, threatening, or thuggish; there are no violent, thugged-out gangsta rhymes on Sunset Scavenger, and Zeph favors a congenial, good-natured sort of vibe whether he is featuring various MCs (who include Boots, Vursatyl, and Rashaan Ahmed) or providing a hip-hop instrumental. During the course of the album, the West Coast mixmaster samples everything from soul, funk, and disco to fusion and hard bop to Indian music.

DJ Zeph - Sunset Scavenger DJ Zeph is a bay area DJ and producer who started off his music career as part of a breakdancing crew in his hometown of Santa Cruz, California. Renowned producer Kut Masta Kurt often invited Zeph to his studio and this is where Zeph began to concentrate on his DJing skills. One of the bay area MCs who's been making big waves since the release of his debut album, Lyrics Born features on the jazz infused Hands Up which features a scatty female vocal sample, swing style drums with Lyrics Born tongue twisting his way through his verses. Zeph then returns to his turntablist roots on the funky cut & paster Underscore featuring plenty of familiar hip hop samples blended together with an arabian string melody and b-boy style beat.
